lyrics

As our time ends and friendships wistfully fade away like sand in an hourglass
We realize we’ll be forgotten
Replace like buried in the soil to never be dug up again
And we will move on with our lives
And so it goes Kurt Vonnegut says, as the temporary idea of life sinks into our souls never to be outgrown, only to become more bold as age climbs up the ladder of numbers
My heart is still beating for you and even though I cannot prove it, I can convolute it to slip into your subconscious mind as I bind myself to memories I cannot longer recreate
Wearing your hopes and dreams on my sleeve where you’ll finally realize that your goals in life were just illusions to keep you from that the best things in life will never be freed
As I’m locked into my own subconscious, I believe that love is out of our reach and you realize we will never see each other again
To be fully honest, I’m more than happy to leave you behind and all I really want from you is to shine bright from above and to be a beacon of home from when troubled nights ahead of me make me weary
Streetlights will guide my way back home, wherever that is, and put me somewhere where I can truly believe in myself
If I catch another second with you I’ll take these stars out of the sky and place them into my hand and juggle the cosmos trying to make you laugh as I always do
Broken hearts will be speed bumps on the road and you will show your scars to future lovers and beggars by glass shards
Suburban households that are created out of cookie cutter molds will craft my finest art as cityscapes haunt my thoughts as I try to see whether not I can be the man I was once
Drowning an ocean of web based thinking and countless cigarettes as Neptune’s winds emulate the water that fills my lungs
And when I die my last thoughts will be of you
Not knowing where you are or who’ve you become but comforted at least that I have a lasting thought that will pervade me
